Seelos Therapeutics Announces 1-for-30 Reverse Stock Split

 

NEW YORK, November 24, 2023 – Seelos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SEEL) (“Seelos” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of therapies for central nervous system disorders and rare diseases, today announced that its Board of Directors approved a 1-for-30 a reverse stock split of its outstanding shares of common stock, to be effective as of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.

 

The Company's common stock will begin trading on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis at the opening of the market on Tuesday, November 28, 2023. Following the reverse stock split, the Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “SEEL” with the new CUSIP number, 81577F208. The reverse stock split is intended for the Company to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share of common stock for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

At the effective time of the reverse split, every 30 issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock will be converted automatically into one share of the Company’s common stock without any change in the par value per share. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split, and fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share. The reverse stock split will reduce the number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock from 480,000,000 shares to 16,000,000 shares and the ownership percentage of each stockholder will remain unchanged other than as a result of fractional shares. In addition, the reverse stock split will apply to the Company’s common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Company’s outstanding warrants and stock options, with proportionate adjustments to be made to the exercise prices thereof and under the Company’s equity incentive plans, as applicable.

 

The reverse stock split will reduce the number of issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock from approximately 167.7 million to approximately 5.6 million.
